Minerals on a Mission

I had no idea when my son was diagnosed with multiple food allergies that I would be embarking on a more natural way of living, that I would be concerned with not just the ingredients in our food but in the products we used as well. But I’ve learned a thing or two over the past two plus years of reading labels and I’ve started to care about seeps into my body through my skin as well as my mouth.

That’s why I switched from liquid foundation to mineral powder makeup and I love the way it makes my skin look.

I’ve used several product lines and have recently discovered Mineral Fusion, although, I haven’t tried their makeup…yet. But I have tried their skin care line.

I was going to wait at least two weeks before writing about it; I wanted to give it time. But after a day, I was in love.

I. kid. you. not.

I like the scent – kind of a deal breaker for me – reminds me of going to the spa. And I love that the products are paraben free, which means natural in my book.

I love these products so much I’m being cautious not to waste to a drop. I use about a quarter size of the Purifying Gel Facial Cleanser, a dime of the Skin-Balancing Facial Moisturizer, and a pencil point of the Revitalizing Eye Treatment on each eye.

I’ve tried several eye creams since the crows feet started to make their mark and this is the first time I’ve seen a visible effect. The wrinkles actually seem to disappear! Now, I know they are still there and that no beauty product is going to stop time from marching across my face and through my hair, but I’ll take the illusion.

While my wrinkles seem to be fading, my acne seems to be reappearing. Not bad but I am breaking out a little. It could be the minerals purifying my skin. Or lack of sleep (I have two small children). Or poor hydration (I drink more coffee than water). I am not deterred, though. I’m going to keep using these products, together, and hope my skin clears up.

I’ve heard that using several products in a line together is the secret to good skin care – that and drinking lots of water. Maybe that’s the secret to this success.
